What kind of a couch will it be, on which our independent lions will lie down by the side of the radical lambst If they were our nearest relatives, we could not vote for the independent candidates under the present circum stances. A bluff game will sometimes suc ceed in playing a poker hand, but it don't bug-a- boo the Democratic party worth a cent. Chief Ouray of the Ute tribe is still on the plains. So the Democrats need not "tremble in their boots" as "long John" says they do. There won't be any scalping done on election day. Long John, the bully boy, "all the way from hum," Bangor, Maine, told 'em how proud he felt once more, to plant his foot, thirty-three inches long, 'on the old republican platform, haw ! hamw!" And our alarm gun will continue to send its shells through our cane brakes, bursting as they go, to let our good people know that the hour has come once more "when'every man is expected to do his duty," How our independents will manage to tune up their political fiddles, so that they will play in accord with Chapman's Radical fife and the'bugle of the Democratic party, is a mystery that the best of musicians can't solve. Democrats of East Baton Rouge, will you vote as Chapman does on the 2d of December? Do you think that the son of the pinelands, all the way from Bangor, Maine, will do to run political hotels in the Louisiana low lands. Not the heart of Mid Lothian, but the steel-clad one, that takes the place of 'Grand father's clock' in car pet bagger Chapman's elongated body, swells with jackalistii emotions, at the attempt to raise the radical corpse in this parish. " With the same scriptural charity, that makes some men kiss the rod that smites them, the radicals propose to take up the ultra bulldozers of the Democratic party. 'Zactly, but we don't understand how such things can come to pass. People of East Baton Rouge can you afford to vote the Independent Republican Fusion ticket and thusre open the turmoil that broke up our parish a few years ago. For the sake of the common welfare, do not aban don your colors at this time. The fight is a square"up and up"be tween thile Independent-Republican F usionists against the Democratic party. People of East Baton Rouge don't desert your colors in the face of thile enemy. Lay on Macduflf; And dtamned be he Who first cries hold, enough! And his name was Captain Kidd, And he sai, ya-y-ay-ay-yled. No it wasn't Captain Kidd thile pirate but it was Yankee Doodle-Do-Chap man, all the way from Bangor, who came down to Baton Rouge at tile head of his black warriors to show us "heow we do things to lnhumn." When I went away with my carpet bag in hand, friend B--l, while I was in trouble about that $20,000 in the Revenue office, they all said, thank God, Chapman is gone. But I am hIlere again, friend B-l, strutting the streets of Baton Rouge with per feet impunity. The nasal twang comes in again. EDITOR. The latest news received from the front, by. "long John" are to the effect that Van Tromp, long-legged Tucker, "Sweet Clover," Bulldoo Lane, Alli son, Underhill, and the balance of "'the boys" are packing up their car pet-bags, preparatory to their return to the old camping ground at Baton Rouge. When they meet the open ing chorus will be: 'We hlve drunk from the namoeanteen.' FOR lIREDOM AND OURI HOMES. The battle for Liberty against Des potism has begun in the Northern t country, and the Democratic lines con- c tending for the government created x by the menof 1776, have bleu repuls- ( ed as far as the boundaries of the glorious Empire State. Though the t Democracy was divided between t Kelly and Robinson, Clarkson Potter t and the rest of the ti-ket are elected c by a handsome majority, and New t York has breasted the radical wave. That noble State proclaims that her t thirty-five electoral votes will be given t to Hancock, Bayard, or any other t patriotic Democratic candidite for ] President in 1880. With Indiana for the Democracy, acting in unison with the solid South, t the Centralizers or Imperialisti must go the wall, and the men whp have "struck oil" in Pennsylvania, or have grown rich through monopolies will i not become Shoddy Dukes, and! Prin ces of the Empire of Columbia I The Republic and the Union of our fathers will be maintained, and the humtble citizen will be "a man for a' that." We are no longer the aristocratic South. Our people have become the sons of toil. Though poor the men I who, for seven days bore the brunt of battle before Richmond, and on five t hundred other fields, will never recog- t nize that they have sunk so low as to need what the shoddies are pleased to 1 call a "strong government." And the South will stand solidly for1 the Coiptitution and the Union, an nothing else. The Demagogues mayi wave the 'bloody shirt' as long at, they please, but we will never flincM and desert New York, Indiana, and such other States as may stand bet side them. The hour is a trying one, and whedt the skulkers are going to the reaet then is the time when ,net stand by their colors. 4 The New York Times and the Tri bune, are urging the radical leaderi to come to Louisiana, there to breaks the Southern Phalanx. Kellogg the, infamous usurper is calling for their assistance. Shall we cower before them and: allow our heroic State to be the first: in Dixie's land to abandon her gallant sisters? We cannot believe for an instant that our people will be so recreant to their past history as to permit our escutcheon to be thus tarnished. Men of East Baton Rouge, yours is the Capital parish, and a heavy thrust will be aimed at you. Will you parry the blow and strike down your an tagonists I We are proud to see that a political battle is to be fought here, because we know that we have the men who will meet thie foe successfully. The enemy has nIot darued to con front you with vizor raised. He has sought to obtain allies in your midst. Tihe mask is now off and your inde pendents have joined hands with tihe remnants of thie carpet bag marauders. Will you not rout this unholy and unjustifiable alliance I THERE WE'LL STAND, It is not our intention to accuse every man who opposes thIe Demo cratic party with being a rascal -qnd a horse thief; much less will we,as sail thie personal character of men who are candidates oni the Indlependent Republican Fusion ticket. There are some on thIe list whom we have heart ily supported while they were zealous members of thie Democratic party. Towards.those, we entertain no other feeling than one of sorrow, that we have parted politically with each other. It is our duty as one who has never struck a blow against Louisilana, to cast our ballot against those wlho in seeking the disruption of the D)em ocratic party, are opening the way to I thie re-installation of thIe dreadful rule that scourged our State durimn too many years. As a journalist, in per forming a public duty, we will follow our politicad opponents step by step, holding a blazing torch )ver them, in order that their glaring inconsistency may be fully exposed to view. Fear lessly will we hew close to the line, letting the chips fidl where they may, unmindful of those whose anger is aroused by our course. When the day of election comes, then do we hope that our good people will throw aside personal tiesof friend ship even, to range themselves under the banner that alone can give our Parish and State lasting peace.and a Sprosperous future. With all of Bob Ingersoll's fauimlts, ,ihe says some good and just thiltgs in Smost eloquent style. For instance: "Women are more faithful than men -ten times as faithful aIs luien. I never saw a man pursue his wife into Sthe very ditch and dustofdegrladation Sand takeherin hlisarms. Inever saw a man stand at the shore wheoe she Ihad been morrlly wrecked, waiting Sfor the waves to bring back evbn her corpse to his arms; but I have seen woman, with her white arms, lift man from the mire of degradation and hold lim to her bosom as thoughl he were ean angel."' The threats of the Independent-Re publican Fusionists will only consoli date the ranks of the gallant IRemoc racy of this parish. Shoulder to shoul der we'll stand together and meet them. We've seen darker days than thete before. If it iras Sheridan who said, "I'm not afraid," can't we say as inuch 9 SAT RADICAL 8OLUIOZ fa In tiother column we publish, a tesoolu ion passed a the Beattie Ba" g cal meeting, over which presided the notoriousCarpet-l ager, "long Joh " o1 Chapman, yrhich states that the e- a publicans of this parish wIli give Ci their support.to the Independent can- ti didates, who in return have promised a to ensure a free election and a fair count at the polls, of all votes cast for C their State ticket. e, We are the last to deny any citizen si the privilege of seeking official posi- i, tion independent of party nomina tions, but when men, claiming to be a Democrats, pledge themselves to el sustain in the manner describ- t, ed above the Radical State ticket, tl they ought not to expect their Demo cratic friends to give them the slight- b eat support. a The agreement itself constitutes, h first, an accusation that the Demo cratic party intends to conduct the p election in a fraudulent manner; and tl worse than this, that these indepen- p dents have it in their power, and c, mean to use it, to prevent such a r consummation. ti Why this accusation, accompanied 14 by this implied threat? ii There are to be no United States r troops at the polls, as in former days, to bolster up the Radical henchmen. Do the independents mean to sup ply their place t We hope that they don't intend to pursue the policy of intimidating their former l)Democratic allies, whose right to stand by their party nominees is one that they certainly will exercise, as they have in the past, under any f and all circumstances. There is no occasion for such "blood and thunder" menaces, as the election will be held fairly and squarely, and in strict accord with the law. The Democratic party has no need and will not resort to illegitimate means i to carry their ticket victoriously. Least of all will they use force or in timidation ; but we caand do assure all whom it may concern, that the Democrats will not allow themselves to be bulldozed by anybody, and will cast their ballots like men who, know- r ing their rights as freemen, dare maintain them ! i O OUR OOLORED VOTERS. November, 1876, found our parish, aye, the State itself, in turmoil and anarchy. The people overburdened by taxation whose proceeds were dis alppeaing in the pockets of an un mscrupulous and insatiable set of ofii cials, who in return dared not amid Icould nlot maiutain the law, were drivep to thIe wildest desperation. STh most intense hatred existed he- < tweemn the two races, and bloody con flicts were almost of weekly occur rence. The Kellogg govrnblment, composed - of men who, dragging the State deep- I er and deeper into the abyss of ruin and bankruptcy, were powerless to 1 bring any remedy for this extraordi nary condition of affliirs. Thie in cursions of his metropolitans, backed by federl troopers, servedl only to intensify the fires of hIatred that reigneil in the breast of every man. 1 Federal bayones, led by U. 8. Mar shalsgleamed around every polling place. Men were abandoning their Louisiana homes to seek peace and an honest livimg in Texas and else where. It was at this dark period that large numbers of your race yielded to the repeated appeals of your white fellow-citizens, and your votes were cast for Nicholls and Wiltz and the Democratic ticket. What has been the result i Since then race animosities have disappeared. Every man, white or Sblack, feels to day that he is a free e man, and so long as he pursues his avocations as a law-abiding citizen, he goes forth .unmnolested from one end of the State to the other. You no longer need your revolvers or shot-guns. Peace and good feeling hold supreme sway over us all. Con fidence has been restored everywhelre; agriculture and other industries are reviving; capital is beginning to seek investment in our midst. Soon'our parishes will be traversed by railways going in every direction, and a better Sday is clearly dawing in the near fu ture. SYou placed your trust in thie hands Sof Democratic representatives to the Convention lately held in New Or leans. Have you any renason to say that you were deceived by them They were in overwhelming major Ity in that body, and had it in their power to throw many obstacles in nthe way of the enjoymemnt of your I rights as citizens. Have they done so o By the acknowledgement of tihe Srepresentative men of your race, a Messrs. Pinchback, Allan, Landry, e Demas, and others, the new constitu g tion is pronounced to be one that is r unsurplassed by that of any other r State in the Union. "Any man, white n or black," said Mr. Pinchback, "can a live under its liberal provisions," and e addressing himself to the Democratic majority of the Convention, he added: "You have done all and more than I had reason to expect for my race, - and my heart is filled with gratitude - at the liberality you have displayed - in framing this Constitution. I cannot t part with you except as friends, and nI thank you all, whatever you e- o Democrats, Conservatives, aye the a Bulldozers even, if there be such here for what you have done. We can go fonth tor: or ot yo lYo% dI wpot;, ;co B cratic representativesin. ei ' -tion while you cast your votes at I approachlingeec$lop.. .1 r Of course you will vote fo: the. r Constitution, .beeause it contains everything that you can wish for, be- s n sides re-establislisng the Capital d - in your midst-at Baton Rouge;! d We appeal to you as on6 of those. B who, on the floor of the Convention, Ii stood up in advocacy of your rights, hi to give your votes to the nominees of s' , the Democratic party, rather than to - others whose only claim is their ina bility to obtain the nominution of the it self-same party, and in consequence p have styled themselves Independents. " If you are to chose between regular a e Democrats whose brethren have shown u d that their party would stand by their b - pledges, and Independents who still d d claim to be Democrats, but 'who will e a represent nothing but thenselves in a the positions they seek and be power- 11 ti less to assist you in any way in return, is it not the part of wisdom to give the c i regular ticket your undivided support. C , - a BRALLYIlIG TO THE STANDARD. *t It is with no little feeling of satis- I Saction that we publish in another 2 column, a card, announcing that Mr. Charles Cousinmrd, who like many others lhad been inadvertently drawn into the independent movement, has t seen how much injury . would result y from its success. Like a man who t loves his State and parish, upon ma t d ture deliberation, he has taken the manly resolve of sustaining the old t Democratic party, and to align him- t d self by the side of his friends. We a doubt not but what many others will ' imitate his example before long. "Hail to the Chief who in triumph ad vances." e The morning of the day of the Re 5 publican party is now dawning upon 1 11 us, and my heart (grandfitther's clock) 5 was filled to overflowing, "long John e said," in walking the streets of Baton Rouge, after the Republicans had in dorsed the Independents, to see the white headed Democrats bowed down in despondency. They looked upon dme no longer as old John Chapman, d but as I tipped my hat with my usual courtesy, they uncovered their heads until you could see their very crown,1 in admiration for the cuteness with Swhich I had just phlyed "the little game." The nasal twang and the stooping l *' swinging gait of the old rooster can't - tcome in here.--El. I- I r- HEROIO DEFRIOE OF THE IRON OLAD biUAB0AR. iAd PANAA, Oct. 25.-Further infor ilmation of the cruise of the Iluascar and Union, Southi, and of their meet ing withl two divisions of the Chilian to navy, is derived from thile official re i- port of Capt. Aurelio Garcialy Gar . cia, commandluant of the Union. The two vessels called at Iquique, thenl I stood South, arriving off Sarco, a to Chilian port, on the tiurth instailt, at where they captured the Chilian n. schooner Coquimbo. On thie morn - ing of the fifth they entered thie har bor of Tanquey, when we lenrned ig that an attentpt would be made to ir land a strong Chilian force at Iqlui id (que or som0e other lpoint oil the coast 1 of Peru. Admiral Granu then ldeterm ined to return to Aien. Proceeding niorth the two Peruvian I at steamers, on the eighth, sighted the to first division of the Chilian fleet, 1 te which was looking for them. The Huascar'and Union at once put about re and mnade off is .fast as possible to ie the southwest. They had drawn well away from land, the Chilian fleet following them, Wthen Grau re solved to steer north and endeavor to Ve run between the Chilian fleet and the or shore. In this manwuvre he suc e- ceeded and swept by the enemn's is first divison without firing a gun. The superior speed of the Purnvian In, ships was manifest as they rapidly ne steamed away from their enemies on the Blanco, Encalada and three wood or en steamers-and they thought to es cape, when suddenly they sighted the U second Chilian division, composed n- of the Alniraute Cochrane and sever e; al smaller vessels, coming down upon re them. ek In a few minutes Granu saw he could not escape from this ironclad, ur whose speed was equal to his own. s He accordingly steered for shoal er water where, on account of his light n- ess of draft, hie might lead his huge enemies on the rocks or be able to out-mnansuvre them. The Union ds here deserted her consort and escaped he to the westward, closely followed by lr- several smaller yessels of the enemy. These could not come up with her, ay and she proceeded north to Arica without having fired a shlot. The r- fight was begun by the Huasear dis ir charging her two three-hundred poun ders at close range at the Almirante Cochrane, which Grau followed up by ur an attempt to ram his antagonist. o I This was unsuccessful, as the Chilian lie iron-clads are double screws and can present any front they choose to an ae, attack by ramming. , As the Huascar swept by at such u- close range she received a broadside is from the Cochrane, and before she er had proceeded far the other battery was poured into her. At the same ite time the other Chilian ironclad came an down upon her and Grau, undismay nd ed by the odds against him, boldly ti placed himself between the two ships, which were thusprevented from firing d so rapidly, on account of the danger an of hitting each other. This, no doubt, e, prolonged the fight, which lasted two de hours before the Pernvian flag was hauled down. ed For about an hour the officers of ot the Union were able to observe the od deadly combat and speak favorably Sof the manner in which all three iron clads were handled. It is not known whether the Huascar was taken by - boarding, or whether after the death go of Gran, which is said to have oc deed, t aW hier 'el clad Whclehw her broadsldýi6* 1 y` her twiupac * *s sent to her adversit tes any battewyathe Wihed uThe eHr's uee weI e 4w The damage done to the ironclads is inconsitde;able. mirante` Coeobrane wlh i :the brunt of the battle, ;was, what damaged, but the Blanco Et' calada escaped almost entirely.

Determina- I tion to wage war until victory is ob- 1 tained, or all lost, is as fixed as when hostilities commenced. The minis try, to give the President an oppor tunity to choose new advisers, re o signed, but their resignations were not Saccepted. A report comes from Lima that Mrs. Gran, wife of the heroicadmiral, on receipt of the intelligence of his 1- death was so seriously affected that she died shortly afterwards. n WHAT INDIAN W FARFAB MEANS. ) SAVAGE BRUTALITY OF THE NEW MEXICO INDIANS. The following is a copy of a letter addressed to John T. Sears, Jeffer son City, Missouri: ii MESILLA, New Mexico October 16, i 1879. Our party has just returned. The Indians have gone to the Florida I1 Mountains, to Old Mexico. We were e on the road four days and nights. , Found Jones' body and sent it home. I was one of the first to ride upon it, and was the most terrible sights you e can imagine. Also found the others who were murdered with him. They 9 had their scalps taken off in some 't cases; in others, eyes, noses, fingers, toe, etc., awere cut off and stck in thie deadl nen's inmouths and eye sock j eta. Before we got to that lparty, though, we had buried eleven other bodlies who were murdered on thel - Ine day by the samne party. They i r were Mexicans, coaning here from - Silver City. Thre Indians took themn a by sur'prise, and murdered the whole I -train. They also killed all the oxen, - some twenty-five in number. About e 100 yards on this side of that train a they had Ipluudered another one, de a stroying wagons and cargoes. The t, only thing they took from the train n was coffee, sugar and whisky. They i- cut the flour sacks and scattered flour r- on the plains, throwing sand in it so d that it could not be used. I rode o down to one cart to see if there were i- any bodies. When I got within a st hundred yards I saw a Mexican sitting b- bolt upright on the seat ; thought at first hie was alive, but as he did not n stir I wtent closer, and there he was le dead and stiff, with a bullet hole t, through his forehead and both" eyes le cut out and lying by his side. Some it of the cattle only had their legs cut to off to die froni thirst and starvation. n We killed them wvith our six-shooters. n A few dogs were at thie train with all - their toes ueat off, starving to death, to We piled the mens' bodies together ie on the plains, and heaped rocks on c- them for a grave. Then we went to 's Lloyd's ranch, passing by plundered I. trains, dead horses and cattle all the Lu way. But at Lloyd's was the worse ly place; seven bodies were found and - buried; every living thing was killed; I- horses, chiekens, dogs, oxen, cows, 8- burrows and men; the ranch was bur to ned. I counted sixty-one dead cattle ad before I got tired; 160 head were ly r- ing dead on the plains all round us, n not including hogs, horses, etc. Then we saw 150 head of fine, Merino rams ic dead in a corral, sothink youecouldn't II, walk without stepping on them. I n. tell you of many things we saw, the al work of the Indians, if I were not so t- completely "played out." Have 3e traveled 150 miles on horseeback, to night and day, over all kinds of coun m try. td I thought at one time we had iy strick the Indians and would have Y. to fight. In fact everyone thought r, so, and our captain made us dis ca mount and get everything ready for e the fight. We were passing along a a- mountain where the Apaches had n- killed some men the day before. te And then we saw their tents, early )y in the morning and started for the it. Floritas. On top of the mountain we n found their dried beef and hides, In They will probably return in a week. m When we were at Mason's Ranch we could see their signal fires on the sh mountains. A light would flash up e for a moment, and then go out. This e wouldbe answered by a light from ry another place, and so on. We eould 1e have whipped one hundred of their e braves if they had jumped us. They F- would have got some of us, but ly wouldn't have won the fight. e, I hope I will never have to go on ig another scout. I have had enough, ur and seen all I care to see. Unles you t, see with your own eyes what blood ro thirsty devils they are, yeou will is never belive whatyou hear. Have not had anything to eat but of raw bacon for four days. You would 1e never know how good it was until ly you get out on the plaips where not i- a thing is in sight but coyotes and a rn rifle ball can't catch them. Yours, H. C.
